i stopped taking my birth control pills this month (if im on a 28 day cycle my period is due in 3 days) but have been getting symptoms similar to pregnancy, just want to know if anyone else has experienced this?
-constipation (sorry for tmi)
-burping after not drinking
generally not feeling myself
These symptoms are all pretty subjective and could be related to a number of conditions. If you've just stopped your BC pills, it is possible that pregnancy can occur, but you only have a 35% chance of this happening if you're under 30...and that's if the sperm arrived at the egg and all systems are go...so take a pregnancy test in a few days, and you'll get a better idea if pregnancy is the cause or not.
Ok, I stopped taking my bc pills about a month ago and had my period as soon as I stopped taking them. I started about a week after my period getting symptoms of pregnancy. Bloating, nausea, sore nipples, fatigue, and spotting. I took 3 pregnancy tests and 2 were positive. I went to the doctor and the blood tests were negative. So therefore they wouldn't see me as if i was. What should I do? Could it just be that my hormones are going crazy for coming off of my pills.
To KrystalJohnson23, so were you pregnant, or was it the symptoms of coming off of the pills, I am experiencing the same symptoms now, and I just stopped taking birth control pills as well, just wondering what your outcome was, if you dont mind sharing?
FYI...After stopping the pill, I was having similar symptoms:
Heightened sense of smell
Heavy feeling in lower abdomen
Slight brown bleeding
Going to the bathroom 2 x before lunch
I definitely thought I was pregnant. After almost 3 weeks of wondering and 3 days late for my period, I took a pregnancy test. It was negative, and go figure I started my period the next day.
I am experiencing the same thing.... I stopped the pill, it will be 3 weeks this weekend. Since last saturday I have been experiencing nausea off and on. Also I have almost constant stomach cramping. Plus I was getting horrible headaches that wouldnt go away. Today is the first day my headache is tolerable. Bloating... My stomach doesnt feel like it should. My cycle is set to start on the 16th if all goes right after stopping the pill I bounce back. I talked to the Dr and she said it could be ovulation cramping but its been 4 days... ovulation is 24 hours.... HELP ME! I am so confused!
i just went through similar symptoms and they went away
so i think that was just my body adjustin
does anyone know from when u start countin after stoppin the pill?
do u count from ur last period or the bleedin u get after u stop bc?
not sure whetha im due or stil too early to take test?
I stopped taking my birth control pills and have been experiencing tiredness, back pain, bloating, constipation, frequent urination, sore breasts/nipples, and I've also been a bit gassy lately. My cycle ended on Saturday and I was supposed to start a new pack on Sunday. I didn't and had unprotected sex on Wednesday and Thursday. So technically, I missed 4 active pills. My next period is due in 2 weeks. I just can't wait to take a home pregnancy test. I don't mind being pregnant. The anxiety of not knowing is killing me. I am a smoker (about a pack a day) but went cold-turkey the day I realized I could be pregnant (day after ovulation). I was a smoker for 9 years. The funny thing is that I don't crave nicotine at all.
im smoke too
i find i smoke less, just not that interested that much
alota syptoms are from cumin off the pill and ur body adjustin, i went through it too but everythin went away, i feel much betta, just tired
so im in the waitin game, just not 100% when my period is due
good luck !
did you get your period yet though? I'm planning to take the test next week if I don't get mine by then. I can't wait. I go online a lot more often to check for replies... I even looked up a possible EDD... lol... My sister said that I should stop and just wait because the more I look things up and the more I think about it---the more "excited" I'll be and then "disappointed" if the test comes out negative. I've been on the pill for a year and it's just weird not taking them anymore. I fully intend to get back on once I get my period. Hope all goes well for you.
im stil waitin today
i hav looked up everythin, i should be an expert by now
at the end of the day u hav to take a preo test and/or go see a doc for more tests
symptons can be confusin and driv u crazy, as for the period if it doesnt come ur eitha prego or just delayed from cumin off the pills, then i u do get ur period it doesnt mean ur out of the woods just yet ,u stil hav to take a prego test,
doesnt matter which way u go , at the end of the day if u think there is any chance of u bein prego u gotta take that stupid test,LOL
im waitin til next week or the weekend and then im goin see if i can get hold of a test and do the deed!LOL
i do think its hilerious of us girls, havin the power to driv ourselves nutz!!!LOL and internet makes it worse,LOL!!
Hi everyone, I've been off the pill for about 3 months and had 1 period, end march and not had one since then. I've been feeling nautious and people are saying my breats are bigger.. too scared to take test yet. What do you reckon?
I think you should take the test. Amandablue and I are still waiting for our time. It's better to know now so that you can prepare yourself for what's to come. If you're not pregnant, atleast you'll feel at ease. I hope everything goes well for you... Take care.
nothin yet to report except the last couple of days iv noticed constant bubbles in my stomach! read bout it sumwhere but seems odd cos its always goin but not like an upset stomach or empty stomach!almost like movement! cant be prego yet for that , too early but there was sumthin to it, notice it throughout the day! just an odd thing id like to point out, of course dont get paranoid cos u might notice it too and then it doesnt go away, LOL hahahah
hav a break hav a kit kat!!
I'm so glad I found some people going through the same thing as me...I've been scouring the internet and worrying myself. I was on the pill for about 6 years and just stopped. I would have started a new pack last a week ago last Wednesday. Since then I've had major cramping, and sharp cramps when I sneeze or get up too suddenly. I've felt really fuzzy too; just have a hard time focusing. The worst is this distended abdomen; I've had to borrow a Bella band from a preggar's friend just to make my pants fit. It's too early to take a PT so I'm just trying to wait patiently. It's hard to believe that all these symptoms could be the result of going off the pill when I never had any hormonal problems before going on the pill or even on the pill, but on the other hand, I'd only be 2 weeks along if I was pregnant, and it's hard to believe that I'd have these symptoms this early. Ugh.
so far so good with me
i know i could be prego for sure but for now all the early symptoms have pretty much dissapeared so dont panic just yet ,im sure my symptoms were just becos i stopped takenin my pills!!the real question for us is even after the symptoms , are we prego stil cos we stil havnt got our period! this is the crappy part,why hav we missed our period? body cumin right or fell prego real early? that is the question! and so another day passes and lynn05 and i stil wait and wait and wait!!LOL
I should be getting my period next week. If I don't--I'm planning to take the HPT on Friday. My breasts/nipples are still sore... My back still aches... I still urinate quite frequently... I still feel tired a lot... These symptoms haven't gone away yet. My breasts seem a lot fuller as well. I don't know... It's probably all in my head. Anyway, whether pregnant or not pregnant, I've quit smoking! LOL... Yup---no cigs since the time of ovulation...
Does anyone know how early a blood test can accurately detect pregnancy? I can't wait a week to find out if I'm missing a period or not. My pants don't fit and my nipples hurt (and we're not talking snug-fitting pants, we're talking not-even-close-to-fitting). I'm going in tomorrow for a blood test; this uncertainty is driving me crazy : )
